Leveling equipment

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Special new rare/exotic items are being added for leveling, and are more powerful than the items normally available for their level. These account-bound items are exclusively under level 80, will allow you to choose between 2 stat combinations, and will be available via crafting or found as loot.

September 2014 Feature Pack

Leveling equipment is Account Bound equipment designed to help level alternative characters. Such equipment appears as personal story rewards, may be crafted by the appropriate crafting disciplines, and weapons may drop as general PvE loot.

Overview[edit]

This equipment benefits alternative characters, since the gear is Account Bound with slightly better stats than would otherwise be available. This gives PvE characters an advantage while leveling and reduces the stat gap in World versus World. Similarly, crafted leveling gear can be created at a slightly lower discipline level than standard equipment. For instance, the level 60 version of Brightcarved Breastplate requires 400 armorsmith and scales much higher than equipment at the same level and rarity. Further, the minimum level for exotic equipment is normally 62, while leveling equipment of exotic rarity has level requirements as low as 18. The item attribute level for the equipment is 6 levels higher than the level requirement, so the level 60 leveling armor has equivalent stats to level 66 exotic armor found as loot.

Personal story equipment[edit]

Leveling equipment from the personal story is available at the end of each chapter, and as such as available at 10 level intervals. Only boots are available. This equipment provides a +4 level advantage over regular equipment.

Crafted equipment[edit]

Since leveling equipment provides better stats than would otherwise be expected for this level of equipment, the crafting process accordingly requires more resources than other equipment of the same level requirement. This equipment provides a +6 level advantage over regular equipment. At levels below 62, where exotic equipment is not normally available, the difference in scaling due to rarity can be even more significant.

Notes[edit]

  • Leveling equipment was introduced with the September 2014 Feature Pack.
  • Salvaging leveling equipment never yields basic crafting materials like metal or wood. They will yield essences of luck, and high-enough level gear can give globs of ectoplasm and dark matter.
